The Good Sister is about Fern Castle and her sister Rose. Fern is a librarian who has her sister over for dinner three nights a week. Fern prefers to avoid crowds and loud noises as much as she can, and has a highly structured life. Any disruption of her routine can be dangerous. Rose gets some bad news when she finds out that she cannot get pregnant. Fern sees this as her chance to pay back her sister for all that she has done for her. All she needs to do is find a father and she can have a baby for her sister. However, this mission will shake up her structured life and bring up many dark secrets from the past.

Sally is also the author of Mother In Law. Lucy has always known that she wasn’t the wife that her mother-in-law envisioned for her son. Diana is always polite, but she keeps her at arm’s length and doesn’t get close. Diana is considered a pillar in the community who no one has a bad thing to say about, except for her daughter-in-law. Now, five years later, Diana is dead of an apparent suicide. The note says she did it because of the cancer that is killing her, but an autopsy shows no cancer. What it does show is poison. Who could want Diana dead? And why did she change her will just before her death?
